This past week, Pass It Along, a nonprofit organization serving the northern New Jersey counties of Sussex, Morris, Essex, and Warren and CEO Diane Taylor, were recognized by New Jersey Heroes (NJH) for inspiring fellow New Jerseyans to give back to their community. NJH, a private, non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 2010. NJH is inspired by the work of New Jersey’s first lady, Mary Pat Christie. NJH operates alongside Mrs. Christie to encourage, recognize, and support the tireless efforts of unsung heroes that make the lives of New Jersey citizens better. Unlike many other non-profit organizations, NJH does not directly serve a specific community need, but rather recognizes and celebrates the work done by individuals and non-profit organizations in New Jersey.
